easy and good to use application for amateurs and newbies in music.sequencing, editing,saving and opening features are the best suited with MIDI keyboard.I really like setting levels of multiple channels at the same time to the same level. I also like how easy it is to manipulate tempo, dynamics, etc. by just using a graphic line and using my mouse.
price is somewhat high but thanks to free trial offer where one can check and validate the results before actual purchase.it is Not available in Vista Windows which is a Disadvantage but helps very greatly in Windows Xp.
